It appears that "Climategate" * is going to sink the Copenhagen Treaty, which has to be good news for freedom-loving people everywhere. Of course, references to it are scarce in the mainstream media, perhaps because they're having trouble figuring out how to spin it.
Or maybe they can't spin it. The theft of some 3,000 e-mails from scientists critical of global warming (and who showed that the data were manipulated) is a serious offense; especially when so much pressure was being put on the world to adopt strict carbon-emissions rules.
I have been stating for some time that the scientific data led to considerable doubt that global warming was anything other than a hoax. But then truth is easy to ignore until something like this happens.
The fictional Perry Mason was famously quoted as having said "The truth will out." Unfortunately, those with a totalitarian political agenda don't usually let that get in the way.
